Repeat appearance of Lord !

​​
Sri:
Srimate ramanujaya nama:

Priya arangan adiyar,

One of our donors & volunteer has responded beautifully after seeing the mail on the appearance of Lord Hayagreeva @ Hayagreeva Homam conducted by our Gurukulam children. He reminds us of an earlier appearance of Lord Krishna @ the same premises during Sudarsana Homam conducted by our Gurukulam children.

We are reproducing his words verbatim here.

 In addition, we have attached the photos of the Sudarsana Homam where Lord Krishna appeared ( The Sudarsana mantram itself begins with " Krishnana, Govindaya.....") & the recently concluded Hayagreeva Homam.

"
Srimad Bhagavatam, 10.32.1,2 states:

iti gopya pragāyantya:  pralapantyaś ca citradhā
rurudu: su-svaram rājan  krshna-darśana-lālasā:

(Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: O King, having thus sung and spoken their hearts out in various charming ways, the gopīs began to weep loudly - (having lost Krshna from their sight and having searched for Him throughout the night...)

tāsām āvirabhūc chauri:   smayamāna-mukhāmbuja
pītāmbara-dharaḥ sragvī  sākṣān manmatha-manmatha

(Then Lord Krshna, a smile on His lotus face, appeared before the gopīs. 
Wearing a garland and a yellow garment, He directly appeared as one who can bewilder the mind of Cupid, who himself bewilders the minds of ordinary people.)

With....

- devout children and kainkaryaparas,pure and selfless souls, participating 

- young Veda-brahmanas from various Divyadesams (our Gurukulam vidyarthis) and their masters invoking His name from their hearts and 

- Acharya-purushas guiding and participating,

it is no surprise that the Lord finds the setting conducive to 'revealing' Himself!  
also this is His 'repeat' performance.... His earlier appearance as Sri Krishna Himself in an earlier homam performed by our Gurukulam children was as remarkable ! Perhaps, He has made our hearts, His Home ! " 

-Words of our donor/volunteer

Lord appears in Homam! !


Sri:
Srimate ramanujaya namaha

Priya arangan adiyar,

One needs to be extremely blessed to view the picture below.

We conducted Hayagreeva homam on the 28th February 2015 to pray Lord Hayagreeva (Horse faced avatharam of Lord Vishnu) , the very form of knowledge, to bless the children writing their Board Exams this year. Homam was conducted @ Acharyah school by our Gurululam children under the leadership of SriRaman Bhattachariar.

Look at the above picture!!!! When the Vedic Hymns & chants reached crescendo, the Lord leapt out of the Fire in the form of Hayagreeva! Look at the divine face, the parted mouth, the golden hair, the long neck...aren't we Blessed? ?!!

Let this Lord Hayagreeva who became pratyaksham to the gathering ,bless all your children with the wealth of Knowledge! !

The star glitters...


​​Sri:
Srimate ramanujaya nama:

Priya arangan adiyar,

Andal Nachiyar occupies a unique position among the saints in Srivaishnava lineage on account of Her effusive love towards the divine.  She occupies a unique position among His consorts on account Her grace-born descent to uplift mortals.

Though most of Her hymns bear the semblance of an outpouring from personal experience, Her divinity renders auspicious the entire world and reforms people of all walks of life. Her mere presence is sufficient to bring devotion and spiritualize Her ambience.

Svami Nanjeeyar explains that in the town of Andal, even birds do not have any other pastime than speaking of the glories of Lord Krishna. They never sleep, even at nights, ceaselessly engaged in the experience of the divine.

The children of Srimaan Bhattar Kuzham have been graced by Andal Nachiyar to be able to gain proficiency in enacting the episode of Andal Thirukkalyanam. The effect is a charm that produces spiritual awakening in the onlookers.

Inline image 1
The Andal Thirukkalyanam episode as enacted by Srimaan Bhattar Kuzham has gained such acclaim as to be invited for a performance in different spiritual events. Recently, the children were invited to perform at the Spiritual Fair conducted by the Hindu Spiritual and Service Foundation. Our Trust was one of the very few stalls to represent SriRamanuja darshanam @ the stall. The organizers of the HSSF were so moved seeing the past performance of Andal Thirukkalyanam that they wanted to have it as the main programme this year. Around 1000 children were witness to the dance-drama. Such events carry the message of the life and experiences of Andal, and contribute to a spiritually awakened society.

Confluence of real & abstract ....


​​
Sri:
Srimate ramanujaya namaha

Priya arangan adiyar,

A King once asked a group of artists to draw a portrait of Lord Rama. All of them came forward to undertake the task. The Kind stopped them & asked who among them can draw Raama Bhakthi. The painters had learned the art of portraying the visible. But they pondered how to portray an abstract emotion as Bhakthi? One widely read artist accepted the challenge. He completed the portrait and presented it to the King. It was the portrait of Bharatha. The artist had beautifully equated Raama Bhakthi and Bharatha.

Can you guess who the equivalent of Krishna Bhakthi is? No one who lived during Lord Krishna’s time! Though there were many love-laden devotees of Lord Krishna, the very personification of His Bhakthi took birth on the Banks of Tamiraparani in Tamil Nadu. It was the leader of the Prapannas, Sri Nammazhwar.

One who has love at the Feet of Nammazhwar is deeply loved Lord SrimanNarayana Himself.

Sri Satakopan swamy , a namesake of Swamy Nammazhwar lives at Srirangam. He has been devotedly serving Nammazhwar Sannidhi @ Srirangam for the past 10 years. Come what may, he seldom stays away from kainkaryam.

He was honoured by our Trust under the "SANNIDHI VANDANAM" scheme.

Witnessing a wonderful wedding...

​​​
Sri:
Srimate ramanujaya nama:

Priya arangan adiyar,

As children, we often look into our parent's wedding album & ask " Where am I in it?". We have always wanted to witness the wedding of our parents. Not a childish desire but a child-like wish! Though our parents aren't capable of that feat, Lord Rama & Mother Seetha are absolutely capable !

Lord Raama & Seetha Devi

Children of Srimaan Bhattar Kuzham spend 15 minutes daily to learn Sriramayana charitram squeezed out of all the available material on Sriramayana. So they know what Sage Valmiki witnessed as well as events that eluded him but were captured by the Azhwars through the unconditional Grace of Lord Rama.

The children cherish each of the class & when the Raama-Seetha vivaaha chapter was explained, the children secretly planned to see the Loka Pitha & Maatha's wedding. Not as mute spectators but active participants!

In distress..a friend...

Sri:
Srimate ramanujaya nama:
Priya arangan adiyar,

During the last days of Svami Maraneri Nambi, he became incapable of even thinking about the Lord. This plunged Svami Periya Nambi in worry.  

Seeing his preceptor in worry, Svami Emperumanar reminded him of Varaha Charamaslokam. The Lord manifest as Varaha Nayanar had promised that He never forgets a devotee who has meditated or remembered Him during the days of good health. He remembers his devotee and saves him even during his failing days, when he is incapable of remembering the Lord.

Periya Nambi replied that Varaha Perumal is extra-ordinarily favourable to His devotees – like Ramanuja himself. But, is His position affirmed elsewhere in a more moderate context?

Emperumanar replied that the same position is reiterated by Lord Krishna in the Gita. He declares in the 9th chapter – “My devotee is never wasted.” Also, He says in the fourth chapter that those who know the truth of His incarnations and exploits is never born again. The devotee who has realized the truth of the Lord reaches the Lord Himself.

Listening to these words of Emperumanar, Periya Nambi was relieved.

This episode is narrated in the commentary of the 29th hymn of Thiruppavai to favour the advice of remembering the Lord in the wee hours of dawn.

The month of Margazhi is also the month in which Svami Periya Nambi incarnated. His life and times were remembered by Srimaan Trust as is done every year.
